Hi guys, been busy over the weekend, so normal service will be resumed!

I'll give it a couple of days and I'll PM you all with my address and you can send a cheque each, meanwhile I'll get the orders to Paul.

Perhaps close the order books on Wednesday 25th mid-dayish?

All interested parties have now been PM'd by me, all ten of you!

If you haven't got your PM, or if anyone else is interested, get back to me asap.

Thanks,

Hi again!

Order is in, but I understand there's a small problem with a compressor thingy to do with the Laser Cutter. By all accounts, it's being fixed, and Paul is confident that the spanners are on schedule.

I've received cheques and return addresses from:
georgew
MikewsMITH2
Tako
Quaker Mike
fatboy
delstron

I'll pay them in tomorrow. Ta!



and replies (cheque in the post) from:
delilah
boblo

Thanks guys!



But I've not heard from:

Any update about the headset spanners?

Paul wrote:Hi Mick,
They are in the rumbler!
All being well I should be able to bring them back tonight.
If I don't get home in time for pub, shall I drop them up to the house later in the evening?
Paul



Mick wrote:Hi Paul!
Yes, drop them round if you want.
I have the jiffy bags all ready to post them off, so I can do that tomorrow.
I'll be down the boozer until 6.30 or so.
Great stuff, but what's a "rumbler"?
M.


:D :D

It takes off all the sharp corners.

That's alright then!

Have you asked for user feedback? We'll need product reviews.
Hand wash only. Do not iron.

Product reviews eh?
Sounds a good idea!

The spanners (all ten jiffy bags) went off via Tavistock Post Office yesterday morning at about 11am.

Me and Mrs Mick F packed them up the other evening, measuring each one and checking the list for who wanted what, she wrote the addresses out, and I posted them! What a team eh?

Paul and me were chatting yesterday evening, and we have another idea for a tool.
(I'll start another thread)

Mine just dropped through the letterbox. Perfect fit and a nice compromise size between leverage/comfort and weight/portability.

Short review! What else can I say: nice colour, environmentally friendly packaging, strong brand image, ..... getting a bit lost now :)

Summary: Excellent job! Many thanks for conceiving it and taking the trouble to have it made and posting them out.

Happy Christmas to you too!

Arrived back from a freezing ride to see a package waiting for me on the table. l wondered what it could be?
That rare NOS campag neuvo record rear mech? Rene Herse décaleur?
... No. Oh joy of joys. MIck's spanner is here!

+1 Fit and feel is perfect. Wonderful job Mick, Paul and Mrs F. Chapeau!!
Idea for another tool? Compact chainwhip/BB tool perhaps? Custom orders? I am trying to source a "non-agricultural" mount for a front LED light hint :wink:
Thanks once again :D
Seasons, Paul
